Chicken fajitas are simple and easy and a great way to get more vegetables into your diet. I like to make them for my family because they are completely customizable - everyone creates their own unique combination of meat and vegetables.
Chicken Lime Fajitas
5 Tablespoons oil 1 ½ teaspoons brown sugar
¼ cup lime juice (2 limes) 1 serrano pepper (chopped)
3 cloves garlic, minced 3-4 boneless chicken breasts
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire 1/2 red onion, sliced
1 bell pepper 6 flour tortillas
Combine ¼ c. oil, lime juice, garlic, Worcestershire, brown sugar, serrano, ½ t. salt in Ziploc. Reserve ¼ c. marinade and add chicken to bag. Marinate 15 minutes in refrigerator. Toss peppers and onions with 1 T. oil. Grill in basket.
Make sure that you grill extra chicken breasts as well. Eat them for healthy lunches all week. Wrap tortillas in foil and heat on grill. Create your fajita according to your own personal style. My fajita had chicken, avocado, pepper and onions and fresh salsa.
You can use this same recipe and substitute steak for the chicken if you prefer. You can also take the meat out altogether and make vegetarian fajitas. No matter what you choose, load up your whole grain tortillas with fresh vegetables and you will have a healthy dinner.
